last week. that's calms down a little bit. there is a feeling that we have to have the big bang here in brussels. europe has to speak with one voice. they have to come up with a grand plan. even if it's not today. but they have to have steps today about, for instance, do they tax the banks here in europe to get more money to give to greece? do they allow this efsf, the current fund that's helping to bailout greece and ireland. do they allow that to be more flexible. it's complicated. but the point is, people want to see firepower. want to see that the politicians are thing as much as they can that make sure that the euro survives. and make sure there isn't an attack on the bond markets. so, we want to see a lot of words coming out of here. then, see some actions. it will be really interesting. it could be all day. we could be here late into the night to see if they can have common agreement on these two very important issues. >> jim, we should talk about the banking sector and how this affects some of europe's largest banks that are heavily exposed to sovereign debt. of all of the 17

to agree on something balanced as long as it's big. in the house r there are republicans ideologically opposed to anything that increases revenue. now all the government deficit projections are based on the idea bush tax cuts expire for everyone, according to current statute, the end of next year. if you regard not only any change in the law that reduces the deficit as unacceptable but any failure to change the law is also unacceptable, then it's going to be very hard to pass anything through the house other than perhaps the mcconnell plan, without the savings in it. >> we're hearing from harry reid using the phrase, "time is of the essence," hearing that over and over again and taking us to the brink. do you get the feeling we are actually inching any closer to clenching a deal? >> i think the mcconnell proposal, with some savings we can all agree to, may very well end up being the package. it's very important to the president we have a 3.5, 4$4.5 trillion package. woe may not in this short time agree to more than a $5 million down payment and vague creation of commission goals, state
